The average person will spend 26 years of their life asleep and 6 of those years dreaming. Sleep and dreams are fundamental to the experience of being human. And yet, they remain a mysterious and underappreciated part of life. Healthy sleep is elusive to many. Approximately one out of four Americans reports some form of sleep disturbance. As practitioners, problematic sleep is one of the most common complaints we hear from our patients and helping them sleep well is an essential prerequisite to all other healing. This course covers how East Asian medicine can be used to resolve a multitude of sleep problems, from insomnia, to sleepwalking, night terrors, nightmares, narcolepsy, bed-wetting, and many others. 

Dreams are one of the most fascinating aspects of human consciousness. Across cultures and times dreams have served as sources of spiritual guidance and inner communication for individuals and collectivities. The journeys and adventures within dreams offer wisdom for waking life and our inner nature struggles. East Asian medicine gives us profound insight into the nature and meaning of dreams. Dreams are portals between yin and yang, the known and the hidden, and perhaps, keys to the mystery of death itself. Daoism, Buddhism, Confucianism and the classical medical texts of Chinese medicine have much to say about the significance of dreams and their interpretation. This course will teach you how dream interpretation can be skillfully integrated into clinical practice.
